Top cap does not sit flush with base?
Anyone know any reason why the top cap on mine may not sit flush with the base? It stops right above the lower 2nd o-ring. I have the other igow from here and its top cap sits flush on this base.

Maybe I should sand the lower inside a bit? Any ideas/tips? Thanks!

does it fit to the base without any o rings? if it does then try thinner o rings

Remove the lower o ring just keep the top one. If you drilled the holes, the cut on inside maybe rough and catching on base?

after i drilled the holes out there was a little bit of metal sticking out which stopped it sitting flush. once i had filed the inside down a little it went flush and also does a little click and locks into place now which is nice.

Ok Removing the O-Rings did not work.

I sanded down the bevel caused by drilling the holes and that worked on the better clones cap, but not on the first clone that was on FT (although I think I may just have to dremel that bevel down a bit more....

Thanks for the info so far! I hope I can get the other to work fine by sanding it more...
